POSTSCRIPTS - The Boleyn Girls




When I was a senior in high school I wrote my senior paper for Mrs. Holloway’s English Literature class on The Wives of Henry VIII. I have always loved history so this was a natural choice for me.  And I guess I had never heard of anyone who had six wives!!  Most certainly this was not a comprehensive report or it would have been at least a novel.

Philippine mission trip


Arriving in Tacloban mid afternoon gave us time to drive through the city. While on the coast and flat it boasted some of the straightest roads ever. When we pulled out of the airport in our jeepney (a relic left from World War II) we went at least 5 miles without turning one degree from the set course. In fact all the roads were so straight that when there was a curve in one, the place was called in the Philippines ''the curve." Not only are all the roads straight, there are no traffic lights, either. During the 5 miles the driver kept up a steady pace of 30 mph even through moderate traffic. When we got into the center of the city, I was astounded to see the cars give way at the intersection many times without slowing the traffic flow down. The side street traffic slowed just enough to miss the rear bumpers of the through-street traffic vehicles.

Because of University Medical Center and dedicated doctors, I am alive today. In late July I was experiencing pain in my abdomen. Dr. Shah sent me to UMC to have a CT scan.
